Home Recipe
Take two full sized shipping containers and seat them on your previously prepared foundation.
Cut out holes where you do not wish to have walls or in the sections where you envision the windows to be.
Amount of holes on the north side should be reduced to minimum.
Add the roof, stairs and mezzanine according to your own personal taste.
Piece all the blocks together and construct your chimney. 
Insulate the structure with the material of your choice and finish the facade. with a touch of your personality.
While selecting the insulating material keep in mind that your house has the potential to be eco friendly and energy efficient. Swaddle it with the warmest sweater possible.
For more energy-efficient solutions you can mount a rainwater collection system, install photovoltaic panels, and add a system of blinds.



If a there is a need for a garage, adding an additional two small containers will do just fine.
If life events create additions to your family and more living space is needed, you can solve this need by adding an extra container.
Once your dependants are ready to move out on their own, you can simply detach that section of the home if it is not required. You could even allow them to take their section with them and have a foundation for their own creation.
